    Shareaza.com Hijacked and Turned Into a Scam Site


    Shareaza.com, the home of the hugely popular Shareaza multi-network sharing application, has been hijacked by scammers.

    According to Skinvista, a developer from the Ďrealí Shareaza, the situation is as follows:

    Greed mate money makes the world go-round. It's a pity shareaza is a nice idea for a program even if in practice stand alone aps like utorrent and limewire do a better job.
